I know that fury received a lot of mixed views. And it is the opinion of this blogger that it did because the characters were almost too flawed to like. Both Em and Chase screwed up royally in Fury and it was hard to figure out if you should be rooting for them or not. Luckily, Envy does not give the reader the same moral dilemma. Yes, some of the characters are clearly bad but I think they are sympathic enough to be likable and if you don't, at least they get what's coming to them.
Em is back but this time, she is on a holy mission and it is a good one. After dealing with the Furies in Fury, Em has no tolerance for their games in this one and she lets her intentions be known. I loved watching Em become a stronger character in her right and her journey to redeem herself (by kicking the Furies out of her home) is a pleasure to see unfold. You get a much more likable character because this one is all about Em caring for other people instead of solely for herself. That isn't to say that her mistakes of the past are gone and forgotten but she is really working to make up for them and it's nice to see that she is way more accepting of other people.
To replace Chase, we've got a character named Skylar. Even though I knew *spoiler highlight to read* she was going to be the Furies plaything in this book, I still find her a lot easier to identify with than Chase. I think it probably had something to do with her being a girl and just wanting to find a place to fit in.Read more ›
MUST READ :]
ENVY is the second novel (September 2012 release) in Elizabeth Miles' series focusing on the quiet but cursed town of Ascension Maine. Some background information is required to keep focus on this particular storyline otherwise the reader will be lost. FURY is the first novel that sets the stage for Ascension's fated townspeople when three beautiful women exact revenge for something that happened a very long time ago. The Greek goddesses of retribution known as the Furies will ferret out those who are susceptible to their charms, and in the end, everyone will get what they want and what they deserve. The `furies' actively seek out those that are easily pulled to the `dark side'. And in that statement sets the premise of Elizabeth Miles series.
In the previous storyline, Emily (Em) was in love with JD, but she found herself attracted to and wanting her best friend Gabby's boyfriend Zach. But be careful what you wish for, because sometimes dreams really do come true-but at a cost no one is able to afford. Two high school students will die and Em's relationship with JD will spiral when he believes she is responsible for his near-fatal accident with the mall collapse. The main characters are all high school aged and KARMA is a bitch. In short: Chase is dead: Sasha is dead: Zach is in an institution: JD thinks Em tried to kill him: and Em knows that the 'furies' are behind everything that is happening in Ascension Maine- and she CANNOT tell anyone what she knows.
ENVY begins approximately 3 weeks after the storyline ended in FURY when a popular high school teacher is missing and presumed dead.Read more ›
The main reason I liked Envy much more than Fury is the fact that we do not delve into the tiny details of the surroundings of our characters every time. You don't see paragraphs of descriptions about the color of snow or how cold the winter is. That was my main issue in Fury and I'm glad I didn't see that in Envy. Also, we actually get some progress in Envy. We find out more about The Furies and their history, as well as hope that there might be a way to get rid of them. All of this is with the help of Emily's newfound friend Drea. Also, there is Crow, a new guy that I actually really like.Read more ›
